Pilot a Remotely Operated Vehicle, trenching for cables or repairing sub-sea components
An ROV is a Remotely Operated Vehicle. These are mostly used in environments where it is either too dangerous or inaccessible for humans to operate. In the wind industry ROV’s are used to lay cables between wind turbines and from the wind farm back to shore. They will dig the trenches and lay the cable as well as carrying out subsea maintenance work too.
It doesn’t require much theoretical training to become an ROV operator, although there will be a number of practical skills and competency courses to complete. Clearly a comprehensive knowledge of the specific ROV’s operating methods and controls is critical.
